Hollywood, Calif. — "There 1 .; romance in them thai 4 ' roarin rails!" Perhaps that line never -got into a script, but the truth of these words has been proved over, and over, again! Show a train sequence in the middle of a draggy picture and a nodding audience comes to life. And, the wailihg train whistle can take scant credit. That is, unless you count the few sound sleepers who missed the first, faint chugging in. the distance. * * . * Trains have roared through mountains of celluloid and over countless reams of "Script- Mimeo-Bond" since Edwin S. Porter filmed "The Great Train Robbery." The first open-air epic to tell a complete story, this twelve-minute, "feature" made movie history. It completed 'a ,-ound trip of the nation's makeshift box-offices of that day and returned loaded high with receipts qarnered by moviedom's 'irst smash hit! For over" 50 years, 'movie trains have reloaded over the same route, i • « « ' D. W. Griffith was quick to note the public interest in train lories. He promptly filmed "The ..onedale Operator," with Blan•he Sweet, and reaped an avalanche of coins. Alice Joyce next became "The 'Engineer's iweetheart" with satisfying re- ults. Just prior to World War I whole series of railway thrillers, itled "The Hazards of Helen ook to the movie rails. Helen Holmes stunted through a pro- itable train-leaping career unti Helen Gibson fell heir to these As shooting techniques irh« proved, director John Ford jockeyed "The Iron Horse" across the continent; only stopping do permit George O'Brien to load on a record box-office harvest. Buster Keaton's "The General" and Lon Chaney's "Thunder" charged down the rails to finish in the money and clear all tracks for the later runs of "Union Pacific," "The Atchison-Topeka and Sante Fe". "The Harvey Girls" and aft, impressive array of -engines from litlte woo'd-burners to modern streamliners.

And, if next year's Academy Awards include an Oscar for the best performance by a locomotive, they'd better have TWO Awards with duplicate Oscars.
